    So...I was browsing along the internet and I came upon a history video. This video was about Scandinavian culture in the past. At some point it told of nameless trader from Scandinavia who traveled to the city of Dublin way in the past- a city they say was founded by Norwegian explorers and traders- and he came upon dark-haired and dark-eyed people in chains. Irish slaves.

    I always thought that Irish people mostly had red hair and light eyes. Was that ever true, is it true today, or am I thinking about Scottish people or something?

    Yeah redheads are actually very rare.

    I'm Irish with brown hair and blue eyes.

    I'm English with red hair (well it's grey now). My sister and I got our red hair from our mother who was half Gibraltan. Our father was half Irish but he had dark brown hair.
    Red heads are said to be going extinct.
